Today's poem is "Sadistic Theme"

from Quarterly West

Kevin McFadden's anagram poems feature lines rearranged, letter for letter, from an existing line of text; the poems here draw from Alexis de Tocqueville and Langston Hughes. His manuscript Hardscrabble, featuring several anagram poems, was a 2006 Walt Whitman Award semifinalist.
